Pattern Mixing: Tye Dye & Plaid

I love an unexpected combination.  Nothing gives me a greater feeling of success like when I pair some weird combination of textures or colors together and it actually works (and half of the time, it's an epic fashion fail). I find myself gravitating to jewel tones, deep neutrals and the occasional bright orange-red, because I know these colors compliment my hair color and skin tone. I've chosen to set up my closet collection this way because it makes getting dressed in the morning five times easier. 

On the downside, having a closet of familiar pieces can make it all to easy to fall into comfortable, but uninspired, dressing. So when this green-blue-gray tye dye piece showed up from Twig & Bloom Goods, I set out to find the most unlikely combination my existing closet could support. 

You can approach pattern mixing in a variety of ways but I like to start with color and tone.  Because of the tye dye top's cool undertones in the navy/gray color I chose a red plaid that was more blue-red (cool) than orange-red (warm). The plaid has a small stripe of teal/green that matches the teal of the faux fur jacket and pulls the look together. Pattern mixing is one of my favorite trends for Spring 2018 so if there is anything you'd like to see mixed together leave a comment below or message me on Instagram!
